Letters written by Yeats mostly from London where he was living, for the ‘Boston Pilot’ and ‘Providence Sunday Journal’ from 1888 to 1892. “They allow us to see into the mind of the young Yeats when, full of race and vision, he was beginning his own work and at the same time dreaming of how he might rebuild the literature of a nation.” (Blurb)
